Still not on the attractive side and a bit pricey, but I could overlook those things for the performance.
(Waiting "patiently" for the 300C SRT8 8-speed) Coming.....soon?
Hot dang that thing is fast.
The 3.8-liter VR38 V6 sits up front, with two of its six cylinders forward of the front axle and four aft. Two bagel-sized IHI turbos sit right at the exhaust manifold for quick response. The 433 lb ft of torque rails across the tach from 3200 to 5200 rpm. Peak 473 hp comes at 6400 revs.The GT-R lists quarter-mile time at 11.7 seconds and entering the Autobahn we had no reason to doubt that. The turbo boost was, as promised, very progressive, with little or no discernable lag, just smooth, even power delivery.
I take back the pricey comment. Low $70s is cool.
It's heavy too at almost 3800#
sick car.... kind of reminds me of the buggati from the rear taillights...
Funky styling -- a lot of stuff thrown together, but it makes a statement, and yeah, for the performance, I'd take one.

I just read the full Motor Trend article. It says they ran 3.5 and 11.7 in 110 degree heat. Yikes!!!!!
